Vases, Vessels and Vintage # 1: Kähler Vase and Grass




This is the first in a new series called Vases, Vessels and Vintage. 
The arrangement is very simple but dramatic - using long slender grass - cut to length to be in proportion to the vase.



I have used a vase from the Danish company Kähler - they are made of stoneware ceramics and are available in many different colours and dimensions.


This one is from the Omaggio line in black and violet. The line is designed by Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft - their vases has a modern shape and the irregular horizontal stripes are made with course brushstrokes.



It has a perfect shape with a not too wide neck - just wide enough to nicely hold a small bunch of flowers, or like here, grass in place.


The vintage that I have added are three tiny little blue glass ink bottles. The same but all a little bit different - they are only about 4 cm high. Very cute!



I hope you'll be enjoying my new series featuring vases and different kinds of containers both new and vintage - and how to combine them with flowers.

Have a good day and until next time - have some fun with flowers.

The combination of the vertical grass, and the horizontal lines of the vase is simply perfect, Ingrid!
